DE36 Hooper Green Goddess style, but wrong colour!

It's shown here as Jaguar heritage

So, here's the question. The original "Green Goddess" was done by Hooper for the 1948 Motor Show which was before Sir Bernard married Nora who I believe is credited as the instigator for the "Docker Daimler" series of cars. Is the Green Goddess regarded as one of the Docker Daimler series? According to the article on Wikipedia it was commissioned by Sir Bernard but the Jaguar article makes no mention of that but does say as his wife that she inspired the "Docker Daimlers" and implies that they came later.

I suppose that there's no precise definition of a Docker Daimler, but if a car is a highly stylish expensive limited production Daimler and Sir Bernard or his wife inspired it, then it's a Docker Daimler.
